Turn any program that uses STDIN/STDOUT into a WebSocket server
Descriptionwebsocketd is a small command-line tool that will wrap an existing command-line interface program, and allow it to be accessed via a WebSocket. WebSocket-capable applications can now be built very easily. As long as you can write an executable program that reads STDIN and writes to STDOUT, you can build a WebSocket server. Do it in Python, Ruby, Perl, Bash, C, Go, PHP, Java, Clojure, Scala, Groovy, Expect, Awk, VBScript, Haskell, Lua, R, whatever! No networking libraries necessary. websocketd will start a WebSocket server on a specified port, and listen for connections. Upon a connection, it will fork the appropriate process, and disconnect the process when the WebSocket connection closes (and vice-versa). Any message sent from the WebSocket client will be piped to the process's STDIN stream, followed by a \n newline.
